Here are the 10 best buys from the Ssense sale

Andrew M. Santos

I never, ever buy designer at full price. First, I simply cannot afford to do so. Second, the discounts are just too reliable, and the deals too thrilling, to shop any other way. High-end fashion still functions on a largely seasonal model, which means that goods will go on sale in July and December to make way for new collections. The pandemic has certainly thrown the entire fashion system into chaos, but there is an upside for discount-seekers. Sale season seems never-ending, as brands continue to readjust to the new normal — and the spending habits that come with it. Right now, hundreds of designer shoes, dresses and accessories are temptingly marked down. Here, the 10 best finds from the Ssense sale to add to your cart before they’re gone.

Basic.Space Is the Invite-Only Resale Platform Naomi Osaka and Virgil Abloh Have Already Joined

While many shopping e-commerce sites are anonymous, Basic.Space allows you to buy from someone whose taste you already trust. Founder Jesse Lee had the idea a few years ago to create a network of his friends to sell their garb. At first, Lee, who has worked in the music industry space, tapped Diplo, Steve Aoki, and a crew of creative entrepreneurs to join. “People were selling vintage stuff on Poshmark and Depop and The RealReal, but there wasn’t a place where it was completely authentic both from a product standpoint, but from a point of view,” he says over the phone from Los Angeles.
